    I'm not sure why it's not possible for your country, maybe there's some sort of error in the translation of your post? Whatever's going on, I think I'll just answer the thread question at face value; having a PayPal is really important because it serves as a very easy auxiliary to receive payments from, which is a lot more difficult if you're doing it through the bank. It's easier to sell and buy products online with the whole invoice management system and whatnot.

    @steve taylor An easy and simple answer is that PAYPAL is only the top most payment processor accepted by all major online stores, Job sites, freelancer sites and even used for personal and family transactions for smooth payment transfer.

    Yes like the @sunshine@sunshine said above you should have a PayPal account. It is not just because you want to withdraw the money from a website but for many other future payment you will receive. You should have a wide accepted payment processing method and PayPal is there for you.

    If you work as a freelancer these days, everyone expect you to have a PayPal account or you will be felt an outdated person.

    Some freelancing sites accept payment processing through wire transfer. But it can be expensive than when processing through PayPal. You can also consider withdrawing in cryptocurrencies. Some sites can pay you in Bitcoin or Litecoin.

    As a freelancer one should have an account on Paypal or Payoneer or any other online payment processing site for withdraw money from your freelancer account to your local bank account.
    Paypal account is important because it helps you to get your freelancer money on your local bank account and it's service is free as compared to Payoneer.
    But you have to wait for 15 days to withdraw your first payment into your local account after that you get instantly.

    I've withdraw money easily within 2-3 business days after moving from Paypal into my bank account. Usually it takes 2-3 days to withdraw, but this is not an issue for an online business entrepreneur.

    Paypal account is important as it is the best online payment service to withdraw your money from freelancing sites to your bank account.it takes around 2-3 days to transfer money to your account.
    paypal account also used for shopping,transferring etc.
    paypal account requires PAN card.so if you dont have Pan card, then you may face an issues in near future.

    What is the name of the Freelancer site that doesn't support India and every Freelancer from India has a paypal account why not you? Make sure get accounts with other payment processors too as they help in purchasing or selling good if they don't have PayPal account.

    Is there is an option for you to withdraw by check? Why didn't you check the withdrawal methods before taking on the project? They only support direct deposits for freelancer writers based in the USA. If it accepts Paypal, sign up and you can immediately get the funds but you need to add a bank account to withdraw the funds into your bank account.

    PayPal account is widely used in international money transaction, There are a lot of options available for sending or receiving money Internationale. PayPal is available for both users individual and business. In few country they also provide debit card or offline banking.

    Because you earn in $(dollar) and any other currency from freelancer, If you are US citizen or any other country which Currency is $ (dollar) or that Currency you earn from Freelancer. You can transfer your money directly in your bank.
    And Paypal is not important so many option are available for money transfer so you can choose any one.
